No you're right there are letters  Cheesy, Are you 100 % sure it's silver or maybe silver plate ?

I was thinking the same....... it may be gold gilt in side, or just the metal its made of and silver plated out side, a lot of them are.

My eye glass shows the letters I mentioned. The stain colour you see inside is most probably cause by what was kept in the case snuff etc.

Rare one then lol. Another strange thing was that I showed a guy who deals antiques back in the summer and the only thing he said after he had his eye glass out was its very nice and offered me a number of purple 20 notes which offcourse I declined as I was curious to why he never gave me any info on it just wanted too buy it  Huh

we may be halfway there with the letters however I can't seem to find a star inside a star that matches mine surely there's another silver item with the same stamps out there
